MORE THAN A SOLDIER
Genre: Inspirational Romance
Thereâ€™s more than one way to be a
hero . . .
Former Special Forces soldier Hank
Fleming is living a safe, quiet life in upstate New York, but there
are days he isnâ€™t sure heâ€™s going to make it. The sole survivor
of a devastating grenade attack in Afghanistan, he is still scarred,
physically and emotionally. He hangs on to his faith and tries to
keep moving forward, waiting for the day that somethingâ€”or
someoneâ€”can make him feel whole again.
Cindy Giordano is searching tooâ€”for
her biological family and a fresh start. When her journey to find her
brother, Edward, leads to Hankâ€™s front door, she is instantly drawn
to Hank . . . and instantly wary. With her ex-fiancÃ©â€™s betrayal
still fresh in her mind, friendship is about all she can muster.
When shadows from Cindyâ€™s past
threaten, Hankâ€™s protective instincts shift into high gear, and he
realizes everyone has their own battles to fight. But the road to
healing would be much sweeter with the right person by his side . . .
Irene Onorato was born and raised in
Bronx, New York. Her father, a first-generation American whose
parents were born in Italy, was an Army veteran who had served with
the 178th combat engineers during WWII. He told numerous stories of
battles, hardships, tragedies and triumphs. The glimpses he gave into
the hearts of many American warriors would later become the
inspiration for much of Ireneâ€™s writings.
In 1972, a few months after graduating
high school, Irene met James Onorato, a soldier who had just returned
from Vietnam. After dating two weeks, they married, raised three
children, and are still happily married today.
Irene and James, both radiation
protection technicians, retired from the nuclear power industry in
2014 and now reside in Louisiana. Readers can visit Ireneâ€™s website
at ireneonorato.com, and find her on Facebook.
